Yarn Along ~ Parenting and pink

Joining Ginny over at Small Things for Yarn Along:
"~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ... ~"

I want to do more felting!! I had so much fun felting for the first time last week, that I decided to get some more wonderful wool and do it again. This time I am going to crochet a simple shoulder bag using 2 strands at a time for thickness.  I hope to finish soon as there is some knitting to be done! Is everyone else loving Yarn Along like I am???

Many might already be familiar with Naomi Aldort's book Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves.  I've had it for awhile and wasn't sure if I wanted to do another parenting book (you know, because I have all down pat <wink>). But so many have recommended it and I think I even saw it last week on someone else's yarn along? So here we go, parenting and pink, not a bad combination :).


  1. hi there I am stopping by from over at Ordinary Magic.I am learning to let go and freely school instead of going by the books.
    The blanket that you made on the 18TH,My grandmother(in Florida) made me the SAME ONE but purple and white.I am thinking of teaching myself to crochet???????since she lives in Florida.
    I am a new follower please feel free to come on over.

  2. I love your crochet, such lovely colours.
    By the way, thanks so much for stopping by my blog today.
    I love the feel of your blog. I will visit again soon :)

  3. You crochet! I'm learning and I love it, but I'm teaching myself. I find the stitches easy to learn, but reading the patterns? that's another story. : )


  4. I love the color combinations of that yarn, it is gorgeous. I am intrigued to read that book, it is going on my library list for next week :).

  5. I'm adoring the Yarn Along! Makes my Wednesday every single time.
    I'm intrigued by the shoulder bag, can't wait to see how it develops. I've a thing apparently for bags and it's occurred to me that bags might be perfect for fiber fun in Florida in the heat of the year. ;)

  6. I am excited to see your bag finished! Felting is so much fun!

  7. that's really nice combination of colors :) I like it :)
    I hope you'll post a photo of the bag when it's done? :)

  8. I am completely loving the yarn along to :) It is so much fun to meet new people and the oodles of projects and books that I'm learning about is awesome! Love the colors you are crocheting with this week and I can't wait to see how your bag turns out :)

  9. I have that book and have been meaning to read it for a long time... I haven't felted anything in a while and since I last felted, I got a front loader washing machine. From what I have heard, it doesn't work with those...

  10. I've never felted anything! I hope you post what it looks like when you're done. I love felted bags.

  11. I love the colors in those circles! I only once felted the french press slippers..they didn't last too long, so I wonder if all felted things are less sturdy then non-felted things. Anyways, can't wait to see what it looks like. Love the hearts mobile below.
